A screening of Mei Kelly’s documentary, “Adoption and Identity Intertwined,” will be a feature of the Evanston History Center's Under the Buffalo lecture.
The event takes place on Thursday, Feb. 25, at 7 p.m. at the Evanston History Center, 225 Greenwood St. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with a wine and appetizer reception
Adopted at nine months old from Southern China, Kelly uses her film to tell the stories of adopted teens today and to explore a range of issues related to adoption.
The film was sponsored by The Beat, a subsection of the Cradle, an adoption agency in Evanston, whose early supporters included Caro Blymer Dawes. A discussion with Kelly and filmmaker Susan Hope Engel, who mentored Kelly on the film, follows the film screening.
Admission: $10, payable at the door. EHC Members, free. Information and reservations are available on the EHC website.
